# DT Oscillator

This study calculates and displays the two Subgraphs of a DT Oscillator for the Price Data.

Let \(C\) be a random variable denoting the Close Price, and let \(C_t\) be its value at Index \(t\). Let \(n_{RSI}\), \(n_{S}\), \(n_{SK}\), and \(n_{SD}\) be the **RSI Length**, **Stochastic Length**, **SK Length**, and **SD Length** Inputs, respectively.

The first indicator of the **DT Oscillator** is denoted as \(DT^{(SK)}_t\left(n_{RSI},n_S,n_{SK}\right)\), and we compute it for \(t \geq n_{RSI}\) as a Simple Moving Average of a Stochastic RSI as follows.

**Note**: In the above formula, the Stochastic RSI is computed using a Simple Moving Average.

The second indicator of the **DT Oscillator** is denoted as \(DT^{(SD)}_t\left(n_{RSI},n_S,n_{SK},n_{SD}\right)\), and we compute it for \(t \geq n_{RSI}\) as follows.

**Note**: Depending on the setting of the **RSI Average Type** and **SK Average Type**, and **SD Average Type**, the Simple Moving Averages in the above calculations could be replaced with Exponential Moving Averages, Linear Regression Moving Averages, Weighted Moving Averages, Wilders Moving Averages, Simple Moving Averages - Skip Zeros, or Smoothed Moving Averages.

In addition to the Subgraphs of \(DT^{(SK)}_t\left(n_{RSI},n_S,n_{SK}\right)\) and \(DT^{(SD)}_t\left(n_{RSI},n_S,n_{SK},n_{SD}\right)\), this study also displays horizontal lines at levels determined by the **Upper Line Value** and **Lower Line Value** Inputs.
